Paper Abstract

The performance of large laser systems for laser fusion is limited by self-induced damage to optical components, arising from the interaction of the intense light with the optical materials in the laser system. In the design of the beam transport optics, due consideration must be given to high intensity effects, including self-focusing, surface damage, and internal reflection focusing. The constraints imposed on the design of optical components by these considerations are discussed.
